This is my typical week, just trying to get feedback or put this out there for others to use. I'm rated 1600-1700 OTB, but I think this plan will help ANYONE who wants to improve. Personally, I'm pretty strong in chess tactics (but often can miss stuff in timed games); never have studied endgame. My goal is to improve my timed, weekend games. I have actually seen some significant improvement lately.
M-F all days are supplemented with some 5/5 blitz games.
Monday: 45 tactics problems; 15 from "Sharpen Your Tactics", 25 from a server*** (This yields about 30-45 minutes of solid training).
Tuesday: Silman's Endgame Course. 30 minutes. Once I get to my rating level (1600-1799) in the book, this day will feature 1 endgame lesson (rather than 30 mins). I also do 25 chess tactics from an online server***
Wednesday: Repeat of Monday
Thursday: Repeat of Tuesday
Friday: Cludi's blog; work on one of the Test Yourself games - you try to predict the moves the masters made in a game and you are scored. I also read articles on this day, analyze my own games that I completed in correspondence over the week. Point is to ANALYZE games, and read articles from good players (check out chess.com). Another resources occasionally used on Friday includes Chess Mentor (a program prepared by a variety of masters). This day is just a day to utilize some other resource that you may have. I also do my daily 25 server tactics
Saturday / Sunday: 1 or 2 60 minute (60 / 0) timed rated games. On both days I do my daily 25 tactics from the server***
***Please PM me if you are interested in the BEST website to do your tactical training. Honestly - the BEST on the net. I do not want to post it in the forums here, that would be rude to the owners of this site.
